Nvidia SHIELD out next week, now costs less photo



Nvidia has announced its SHIELD gaming handheld has a release date at last, and it's next week. The sudden date accompanies a price cut, with the system losing $50 off the MSRP to cost a slightly less egregious $299. 

At just a hundred bucks less than Sony's upcoming PlayStation 4, Nvidia may still be asking a lot for a portable Android gaming device. I love the idea of it, and I'm a sucker for new gadgets, but I'm interested to see who it'll appeal to.

The SHIELD is available June 27, and if all goes well, we'll be able to have a product review for you around that date. There's been some cynicism surrounding this thing, but at the very least, I can say it intrigues me quite a bit.
